The Ruling on Paying Zakat for a Personal Car – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: Is there Zakat on personal cars?

Answer: “There is no Zakat on them.  Everything a person uses for himself, besides gold and silver, there is no Zakat on it. Whether it be a car, a camel, a tractor, or other than that. This is due to the statement of the Prophet (ﷺ):

لَيْسَ عَلَى الْمُسْلِمِ فِي عَبْدِهِ وَلاَ فِي فَرَسِهِ صَدَقَةٌ

There is no charity (Zakat) due from a Muslim for his servant and horse [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 1595]”

[Majmoo’ Fataawa (5/226)]
